A summer contract is a great tool to get parents and kids on the same page regarding summer expectations. It defines how kids are expected to contribute to the household during the school-free months, the consequences for not doing their part, and rules for technology usage and more. Your kids benefit by understanding their responsibilities up front, which means they can exercise some control in how and when they complete their contributions. And you get to let the contract do the work when it comes to persuading your kids to help out, get off the couch and keep up with any necessary schoolwork or goals.Make a summer contract with your kids!
